#10 One layer only

Hello and  a warm welcome to the next challenge.
Please stay and flutter for a while.
Winners results are in the post below.

I have added a new feature to the challenge page.
A Prize Gallery Tab
So if you are a winner
you may  send in  a picture
showing what you've made using your prize.
Shaz in Oz has submitted a card
with the butterfly template she chose from #6
You can find it on the tab above.
The 10th challenge is
One layer only + your butterfly 
No extra  embellishments  to be added just use your blank project/card.
You are free to use stamping , EF folders , Embossing powders
to name just  a few which will give a one layer effect.
I have made some items  which will hopefully
give you some inspiration.
I have used a cream sheet of A4 paper folded for the card.
This gives me the one layer.
Embossed with one of 'Spellbinders'  new 3D folders.
The butterfly and sentiment  have been
  stamped directly onto the card.
Coloured with inks and marker pens.
This time I have used a pre cut patterend card blank.
I coloured the stamps prior to stamping direct to the card.
One layer but with lots of interest.

And finally
  How about this for a One Layer!




A large flat pebble painted, then stamped and coloured.
A  perfect paperweight.


The winner may select one item from the following prizes in the pot.
K & Company Pillow Stickers.

Butterfly clear stamp.


Kanban  Butterfly topper sheet.
